Haruki Murakami Quotes: Way Back When The Sam Peckinpah Film The

Way Back When The Sam Peckinpah Film The Wild Bunch Premiered, A Woman Journalist Raised Her Hand At The Press Conference And Asked The Following: "Why In The World Do You Have To Show So Much Blood All Over The Place?" She Was Pretty Worked Up About It. One Of The Actors, Ernest Borgnine, Looked A Bit Perplexed And Fielded The Question. "Lady, Did You Ever See Anyone Shot By A Gun Without Bleeding?" This Film Came Out At The Height Of The Vietnam War.
I Love That Line. That's Gotta Be One Of The Principles Behind Reality. Accepting Things That Are Hard To Comprehend, And Leaving Them That Way. And Bleeding. Shooting And Bleeding.
— Haruki Murakami —
